As one of India’s most prominent financial institutions, BSE considers itself a ‘role model’ for responsible corporate behavior. BSE has established operational standards and corporate governance standards on par with a listed company. The Exchange believes that corporate governance is based on the principles of integrity, fairness, equity, transparency, accountability and commitment to values. Good governance practices stem from the culture and mindset of the organisation. It is, therefore, not merely about enacting regulations and procedures but also about establishing an environment of trust and confidence amongst various stakeholders. It is about maintaining highest levels of transparency, accountability and equity in all facets of a company’s operations and in all its interactions with its stakeholders.
